World's lone sonnet grandmaster. Shakespeare's Sonnet 1 describes him as “the world’s fresh ornament and only herald to the gaudy spring."

It happens when you browse a search engine,
you'd find a link with utter usefulness.
You should feel grateful, this I must impress:
You don't have to invent the wheel again.

We're lucky in our days to have the Net.
It makes work so much easier, certainly.
It helps me scribble sonnets speedily.
I'm being served by folks I haven't met.

As for my sonnet hoard and other works,
I feel joy doing or creating them.
I hope in future times, a precious gem
will be discovered there by crazy dorks.

Then they shall swear to me their brotherhood
when matters suddenly got understood.

      Publication date cannot be ascertained. Earliest know updating was July 14, 2017. On that same day, the HP editor informed me that Louise the Coffeequeen had just commented.

      That's a great sonnet. Yes, we are indeed very lucky to have the net. It certainly does make life a lot easier.
